I just thought it was an abreviation for Japanness since at school that how our teacher keep say it when talking about peral harbor. Sorry Jun I really didnt know If i did then i wouldnt have said it. thx
Not to judge yet but... sounds like a teacher in need of education. Reminds me of a beatiful book called "Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your High School History Textbook Got Wrong" by James Loewen... the webpage of the author is: http://www.uvm.edu/~jloewen/
it tells you what the book is about.
